    Hey guys, its been a while, good to be back on, I went to London for an internship, man i missed driving! Taking the tube everywhere is nothing like taking the WRX everywhere.
    Hey i had a quick question, of the V34 and the 16g i decided to go with the 16g, does anyone know a cheap source for one?
    also im still a few months out but since i moved from Utah i have not had to deal with CA emissions yet. I have a catless UP and high flow cat DP (knowing id be back in CA) and the HKS exhaust. How do you pass emissions out here with those kinds of mods? I do have the accesport. Thanks for your help!

    PM "rx4mj". He MAY consider selling his 16g. Good condition...maybe even new?

    SMOG usually happens when you exchange title or every 4-5 years depending on how "new" the car is.

    I was in Boston, NH, Connecticut, and NYC for about 3 days last week for work. I can say I'm not a big fan of the freeway systems out there. I'm sure the roads weren't over-engineered & planned like they are in more modern cities, but damn. I only needed to go 230mi and I had to take 8 freeways to get there.

    Since when did an "interstate" freeway only last 30mi and not cross any county or state boundries?

    arent the emissions done every year here in CA? i was sort of under the impression that if you had the accessport then they would just plug in their computer and take a reading and the right map on the accessport would report no problems since most garages do not have a awd machine to test the actual running? or is that way off?

    it USED to be every year. But as the cars and their emissions got better over the years, the state of california extended SMOG tests to 4-5 years. I think my 06 is considered an ultra low-emissions vehicle, so I don't need to smog until 2010 (unless stopped by CHP or if I sell the wagon).

    wow thanks for the info! that is awesome news! I have an 02...i guess the only problem i would have is i have utah plates on it and to get my CA plates this year i will have to go through the smog process...
    if i have the up pipe, high flow cat down pipe, and the HKS exhaust what do you think would be necessary to replace in order to pass smog? or does the accessport make it possible to pass with all of those mods?
